Teacher, 31-year-old Laura Ramos, has been placed on administrative leave from her position at Central High School in Bridgeport, Connecticut, after being arrested last week following allegations of a sexual affair she was having with one of her students.
Police say the teacher engaged in a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old student.
Ramos had told police she went after the student because her ‘husband was not satisfying her at home’.
The Daily Mail reports:
Ramos’ lawyer says his client is ‘cloaked in the presumption of innocence.’
Officers were called to the high school June 9 following a complaint of a sexual assault.
Officers say a student at the school told a teacher Ramos had been having sexual intercourse with one of her students in the special education program.
Police say Ramos told them she had a relationship with the victim from December 23, 2016 until April 2017.
The relationship entailed a number of sexual encounters during this period, according to police.
Another student told school officials that Ramos began a texting relationship with him, according to WFSB.
In these text messages, Ramos allegedly confided to the student about her marital problems.
‘Ms. Ramos would complain that her “man” or “guy” does not want to have sex or do anything with her,’ according to police documents.
It was a classmate of the 18-year-old that began to notice something strange between their relationship. He called his suspicions in to school authorities, who turned the matter over to police.
The text messages were not only sexually charged, but also involved conversations about the possibility of obtaining marijuana.
Ramos will be sentenced and is facing several years in prison. She will also likely have to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.
